and we look forward to going forward with construction next year and we our 2005 site ap was supplemented in august and provide the documents for construction. we demonstrate our commitment to the plan and we look forward to a groundbreaking next year. the rincon plan adopted in 2006 will transform the area into a mix use downtown neighborhood with significant housing presence and provide range of services and amenities that support urban living and set the stage for rincon hill to be home to 10,000 resident s. the plan shows why it's a high priority site and containing large parcels that could accommodate significant high density housing. another factor is the proximity to transit and a neighborhood within five minutes of the downtown financial district and access to public and regional transit and finally major changes in the downtown landscape ranging from the removal of the embarcadero freeway and the anticipated compleeg of the trans bay terminal combine to make the vision even more compelling. through the course of 2005-2006 and 2007 we completed significant planning work and t

funds to do a few things, but most importantly, most of the funds would go towards the construction of an expansion of our current moscone convention center. some of the funds would go towards a few other things and i will get into that in my presentation. but in addition to the proposed assessment district, there is also an ordinance that is going to amend our current article 15, which is our enabling ordinance that augments the state property and business improvement district law. and this ordinance will amend it in a couple of ways and i will go into that in one second. so the ordinance allows for the extension of the life or term of the a proposed business improvement district up to 40 years. if that district would levy bonds or other sort of financing that has to get repaid over many years. currently our property and business improvement districts go up to 15 years. so this would allow a longer term, which is necessary for districts like the moscone expansion district that wants to levy bonds in order to build and construct those capital improvements. so on the first slide,

between the development and the opportunity to stage their construction equipment on parcel o. this is silly. no other development project gets a spare acre to park equipment. but actually, as i look around the room and i hear some of the feedback we've gotten all weekend, i believe the issue probably is covered and i want to take just one second to address the larger implication of some of our decisions to the [speaker not understood] in this room. we are a rapidly growing organization. we have come together as a network of urban farmers, dedicated to helping all of our commutes to create and maintain urban agriculture as a part of san francisco. from the thousands of back yards, front yards, sidewalks, window sills and balconies all over town to the many urban farms that i see represented here today, including 18th and rhode island, alemeny farm, me rammed city, the free farm stand, to growing home community garden as well as garden for the environment, raise the roof, the little city garden, [speaker not understood], please touch community garden, eco sf school farm at the

passed in 1999, i'm just going to paraphrase it because i don't have much time. after construction of octavia boulevard, it says the city shall utilize any remaining proceeds from the sale and/or disposition of the excess central freeway parcels for a transportation improvements to corridors on or ancillary to octavia boulevard. there have been some projects funded from the fund, funds realized from the sale of these parcels. they're all south of market. but if we look north of market consistently we have very problematic intersections that are still yet to be resoderv. we have oak and octavia and market and ok thaiv why which are consistently the most dangerous intersections in the city. in addition to that, every morning in my neighborhood we have traffic backing up on page, haight street, laguna street, and other streets in the neighborhood with road rage drivers. i was assaulted two years ago at the corner of laguna and page and sent to the hospital with a concussion. by a road rage driver there. the point is there are many transportation issues that have still not been address

are having on the project and i guess that is my question. >> the project is currently under construction. it began in june. we were held up with the apellant's appeal of the first permit, which basically slowed down construction progress. this is the second appeal and we are trying to catch up. but at this point we anticipate a delay of one to two months for completion of the project, as a result of the first appeal. to extend this one any longer, would most likely extend that. we're trying to recover by accelerating perhaps, working on the weekends, but a lot of this hinges on our ability to do that given that we're now in the winter. our opportunity to speed up is diminished with the winter weather and we're interested in getting this work crapped up. >> is there other work not related to this permit? >> there is other work going on, but one thick that happens this work is in the center of the park. so you can't do a lot of work around the periphery, it doesn't give us the ability to do it efficiently and effectively since we'll have to plan to bring in equipment at a much later dat

construction on the west side walk way and well used these days. our current project -- let's see. i guess it's up on the screen -- has four elements. this is the base project. this project started kind of small. our director has been involved in this. the director's desire has grown the project and the four elements up there are the crosswalk which is item one takes us from the west side to the east side and a pass through and you don't have to guthrough the trains or the paid area to get there. definitely needed and ada accessible. it would bring you to the other side of the station and where we would construct a new key stall and demolish the existing and the new and work closely with mta on this and that is element number three is the new key stop. element number two would be a cover to the new walk way and nice in the elements and it's going to look nice and not just functional and esthetic is the intent and then you will see -- i will point it out, from essentially item number three to item number four is a salmon colored linear figure on the graph or the picture and that is going t

been involved in. some improvement ideas emerged from those studies and are under way or construction but there are more to come and there are funding decisions on those potential improvements, so just a quick update on some of the work that is being completed already. about a year ago the west side walk way was open and on the image to the right. that project was sorely needed and allows pedestrians to access the station from points north and west to get to the bart part of the station. the remaining item there is get those pedestrians to the muni light rail boarding areas and there is a project actually under way to make that final connection that bart will be talking about in just a bit. there has been a new crosswalk installed at the intersection of the 280 northbound on ramp and ocean avenue to help pedestrians access the station from points north and to the west. i mentioned before that there have been previous studies by the agencies involved to really think about how we can improve this area and this facility. some of them have been funded by the authority and they have res

if construction costs fall below 120 million. i have seen written the port could then negotiate other improvements to the site that would meet up to the cap. is it possible that actually that we could leave as an option that what we -- our lability to warriors would -- >> i want to be clear to explain why that is in the conceptual framework. because we drafted this at such an early stage we wanted to create space now to figure out if there were improvements. not ones we described that warriors are taking on, not open space in improvements described but if there are additional improvements or ones city wants done to degree that exceed what warriors would do in normal course of development we have carved out ability to negotiate a specific set of improvements with their own particular cost cap within 120. what my commitment is is that would be spelled out by term sheet wha. we are not asking for is a carte blanche that can be negotiated after approvals to fill that bucket. >> i appreciate that. that is one of my concerns, that we could use that. in the unlikely case the construction costs are below

, not issued but involved 20cso's with dollar amount of $250,000. nine construction contracts and total payments of 13.$4 million. of that 14% went to lbe's. professional service contracts and five contracts and total payments of $52,000 in that. now just to point out as the as needed cso's and professional contracts and 48 participation so these are dollars that went to the lbe's and the other things this is just the payments within that quarter and this is just really a snapshot in time. the construction contracts are below our ideal goal of 20% on kind of overall port -- looking at all contracts in the port. that was driven by one particular contract primarily and brondon street wharf and more of a reflection of where we are in the construction of that that wharf and as you have seen they're driving a lot of piles. that is most of the work going on. there are not lbe participation opportunities there. you will see it later in the construction of that project and that's what you see often with the construction projects. there's not an even use of lbe's throughout the contract time.

the years first of all, i'm mr. washington. >> sorry, this house is had under gone construction but had a major alteration sometime in the 30's probably before any of us were born into a mediterranean revival. and so, it's whatever originally historic was in the house and so it's clear of the review preservation that it was granted. >> well that was my first question because this was with a lot on a street with a home a lot of home that were in the victorian era and the other situation that the architect just spoke about and showing up the walls and one would presume that there are a lot of homes on the street that are of that age and they must take seismic matters to be able to strengthen their soms and there are probably some that they may not have demolished the walls to to be able do had a and that is one concern that i have and the other concern that i have aside from the impacts expressed by the neighbors and -- if you want to answer that, i guess that would be fine did you. to answer about what they did to strengthen existing homes? was that what you were going to answer. >>

? from a scientist's standpoint, a construct doesn't really mean anything if you can't measure it. i have been asked many, many newer scientists including ken, what exactly does free will mean and how do you measure it? it could be like emotional control. it could be something like impulsivity, impulse control and you get back to the basic problem that chris who is a colleague of anita's at vanderbilt, wait he has put it, how do you distinguish and irresistible impulse from an impulse not resisted. there is a basic gray area, a difficult ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion
